Not really ... because it also uses yahoo's categories and weighting factors...

If you do a search on Google and then do the same search on Yahoo, you will notice a difference ... my search on the term Linux Help (on google and yahoo) show very similar 1-10 but from that point on the lists start to diverge.

Yahoo does use the google technology to perform their searches...

I followed a link from another site.
Specificly, the Beginners section of Linuxlinks.com

The site description says, "We have our own custom guides for those who find the regular HOWTOs a little confusing. "
That 's what got me here. biggrin.gif
